We believe Norman Dewitt’s work “Epicurus and His Philosophy” is the best starting point for all serious study of Epicureanism.
Published in 1954, it is “a fascinating account that challenges traditional theories and interpretations of Epicurean philosophy. Professor DeWitt demonstrates the fallacy of centuries of abuse of Epicurus and the resulting distortion of most discussions of Epicureanism that appear in standard philosophical works.”
This book is a wonderful foundation for your study of epicureanism.
NOTE: Chapter One “A Synoptic View” is available as a free preview. It is a 33-page summary of the whole, and is a great primer and worth reading on its own merits.
